Fahrenheit 451 1984 these books should still be reuired reading for everyone Ray Bradbury does the same in this book as Orwell does in 1984 showing you an all too possible and all too close future of socialism and a society of forced ignorance These books are not isted in horror but they should be 451 shows how a society can be undone by just a few carefully planned aws that Thank You God For Everything look good at first He also shows that humanity will not be completely undone with just aittle bit of Dirla tutta sul mercato globale. Idee per un'economia mondiale assennata light in the dark There are always those who fight Read these books yourself No review will ever give justice to this book I read the first four or five pages four or five times Once I got myself into dystopian mode then I was flying Frankly this book blew me away Published in 1953 the future Bradbury imagined has well and truly arrived I m not talking about robo dog and book burning in aiteral sense but the mind numbing effect of social media the empty diet of visual pap and meaningless tripe so many of us call entertainment So many scenes in this book stand out slap you hard in the face for being willfully ignorant about important issues for being politically apathetic Let s hope that we will be spared the cataclysmic ending Bradbury envisioned The writing is efficient rather than Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing lyrical but the intellectual content is astounding Would recommend This short novel was adapted from five short stories by the author and to be honest it shows The characters are not well developed there are no sub plots and the progression of the story was predictable The only interesting andikeable character Clarisse unexplainably disappears a third of the way into the novel and is never seen again the author admits in the introduction that he should have given Clarisse a proper ending As a book Mordecai Cubitt Cooke Victorian Naturalist Mycologist Teacher and Eccentric lover I did enjoy the musings on the nature and value of books and their effects on society both good and bad but it did still feelike of a short story or even an essay than a complete novel Rather than making me think I felt The Gold's Gym Training Encyclopedia like the whole book debate and all its arguments were just handed to the reader on a plate Funnily enough I actually enjoyed the final 20% of the book the most when it became the story of an outcast running from theaw in a post apocalyptic world that was the only point at which I felt any tension because the ending was the only part that wasn t predictable and I didn t know whether Guy would be captured or not I wish the novel had been extended to show what happened after the city is bombed and how the men slowly re introduce iteracy because that was the part I felt most intrigued about I m glad I read it because it s a classic but it s a strange book and the Structure And Pacing Didn and pacing didn for a novel The Kindle edition does not consist of text Rather it consists of images of each page There is only a white background and the text cannot change size If this is a problem for you you l want to find a different ebook format It is Bradbury classic I admire how Bradbury was able to predict current socienty and technology development Devices used by characters in books Redeeming the Republic Federalists Taxation and the Origins of the Constitution like a shell radio or TV wall which is even interactive are very similar to devices we have now Moreover behavior of the people in the book is very close to actual ones as well it means that there is only one approach toife and everybody who does not follow it is considered to be bad and to be against the system From my point of view the book is warning of slavery which technology in governments hands could bring to us if we accepted and used it mindlessly irresponsibly and without uestioning It is warning of what government would do with technology in order to stalk people and control them However Bradbury s book is not so pesimistic as eg Orwell s "Ones Since It Ends With Hope For "since it ends with hope for in the futureI would recomend the book to everybody who Guide to the Contemporary Harp likes good sci fi and over who has her or his mind open to thinking about future with accepting that it could not be so nice as goverm.

Time Machine as human creatures who have evolved into childlike and uninspired creature through iving a Utopian type existence where there every need is met and there exists no conflict or hardship or anything else to spark thinking innovation and progress I saw parallels in the thinking process between HG Wells and Ray Bradbury and the recognition that a perfect Utopian environment would ultimately Yoga in the Workplace lead to the downfall of mankind as it would strip away our survival skills and instincts and we would not be able to cope with the resurgence of conflict and evil which is always bound to reappear inife Perfection can only ever be a thin veneer over the underlying issues inherent in societies and human interaction which each otherThis is an exceptional book and an inspired story Many years have past since I ast read this book in high school two fifths of a century Back then I think I enjoyed the book as a book about burning books which at the time I was all about as I was tired of school and ready to graduateNow as an adult I come away from Fahrenheit 451 with an appreciation for the book on two counts The first is the "cautionary tale of succumbing to the almighty groupthink "tale of succumbing to the almighty groupthink same one that seems to permeate our society irregardless of political or religious bent working its way into the fabric of our ives one blink of an unblinking eye at a time The second is just how much I ove reading Bradbury s prose The way he writes almost invites one to take pause and re read certain passages again to savor the meaning and craftsmanship of a true verbal artistIf you are on a kick for reading those classic books from your school days or are a young person ooking for some stimulation from the writers who weaved their craft before the Kindle revolution this book should satisfy that need to read and enjoy versus just consuming another product Burn baby burn Fahrenheit 451 is a book I would probably have said I d read if you d asked me I could probably have told you the basic premise a dystopian and where books are banned and Firemen don t put have told you the basic premise a dystopian and where books are banned and Firemen don t put fires any I might well have read it and rather counter to the spirit of the book then pretty much forgotten it And that s kind of sad because this book is one that most readers know about a book that challenges the things we Les Chevaliers du Zodiaque : St Seiya, tome 27 love and yet it s also not really all that great I hate to say it but it s aittle bit forgettableIt s a short novel and a uick read and it Found in Translation lights th This is another worryingly prescient book written in the middle of theast century A dystopian nightmare that is becoming all too realAs is explained in the book Farenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper burns Society has developed to the point where people are immersed in a world created by gigantic video screens tiny radios in their ears and drugs Books are illegal and must be burned because the ideas inside COULD make some people unhappy Sound familiarThis is the story of one of the book burners ironically called firemen due to all modern houses being fireproof who realises the fundamental wrong he s helping to commit waking up and doing something about itThe first half of the book is pacy and well constructed you follow Montag through his growing awareness of the emptiness he s feeling The second half follows what he does about itThis was written in the McCarthy era of the 1950 s but it stands up extremely well today Sadly a Folktales from the Moose of Burkina Faso lot of the things in the book proved prophetic fortunately though not all.
